Making use of digester gas energy
Distributed on February 3, 2016 | Within the framework of the energy transition, digester gases from sewage treatment plants and waste recycling plants are becoming increasingly important. The gas analysis component of the related plant technology plays an important role both for process monitoring and for safeguarding the plant components operated with the digester gas. The INCA gas analyzer technology from UNION Instruments is specially tailored for this.
Reliable use of digester gas energy in sewage treatment and waste recycling plants
Distributed on February 3, 2016 | Digester gas, a term with a somewhat negative connotation, has become an important component of alternative energy generation in Germany. The same can be expected for other countries in view of the requirements of the European Landfill Directive.
Quality monitoring of pipelines
Distributed on November 17, 2015 | Buried gas and water lines made of steel are endangered by external corrosion. Even after the introduction of cathodic corrosion protection in the early 1960s, pipelines still have to be protected from corrosion by a pore-free coating. Only in this way can gas and water suppliers ensure long-term protection of their investment costs in their pipeline network.
Utilize process gases instead of flaring them
Distributed on May 29, 2015 | Today, even though they have less energy content than natural gas, process gases produced in many process-related operations and especially in the steel industry are being collected in gasometers and used as combustion gas in place of natural gas in thermal processes. However, the fluctuating composition of the process gas, especially the CO content and the related fluctuating energy content, calls for special measures.
